There is a solution for Benny The B's Zombulation Policy causing skyrocketing Food Prices and increasing unemployment.....

Free education via online education...the fuel savings will be massive.....

A rapid transition from gas powered cars to electric vehicles...

Restructuring our cities and suburbs so more and more can be obtained via walking or mass transport....China can build a 15 story hotel in less than a week, imagine what we can accomplish in a short period of time if we work together

Consolidate distribution to fewer and more efficient models...

and we can go on and on and on....

Printing more money will only make matters worse in a structural insolvency.... it will only focus spending more and more on food and fuel and less and less everywhere else....and most people function everywhere else

We must totally restructure the system....we must advance forward to the Digital's now time for

or there may not much or many left to restructure

In regards to your idea of a "rapid transition from gas to electric powered cars", no way.  This transition is more costly as it inceases the demand for coal and/or NG, which means we still depend on petroleum.  In the case of coal, it means we pollute more via coal burnign plants.  Also, most electric cars woudl be recharged at night, when it would be competing with households for  energy usage. Incidentally, night time is priem time for energy use.


The biggest fallacy in the aurgument to use electricity vs gas for cars is the fact that the most oil usage is for agricultural purposes.  It takes 1 barrel of crude oil to get a cow fattened for slaughter.  That does not include the petrol required to get it to the slaughtering house or to the store for you to buy it.  This value also is not represented of the few farms that raise their cattle on grass and only grass.  I am not sure on teh petrol amount required to raise a pig to slaughter or chickens.  Suffice to sy, if you want to reduce oil usage in the states, change your feeding habits first, the car is way down the list.

On to your second point of restructing cities, your food to sustain all those people will still come from far away, and the farming practices will still be the biggest impacton oil usage, per previous paragraph.

Now, switching to organic is not enough.  All that means is that your cow, chicken, pig, is being fed organically raised corn and tht extra measures are beign taken so that antibiotics are not used. Usually that means reducing the stocking density per barn etc.  Energy consumption is still nearly equivalent to what it would take for non-organic/corporate production.  The difference is healthier meat products.

The true way to reduce oil consumption in this country would be to switch to grass fed cattle, naturally raised pigs and chicken and a reduction in the amount of animal meat we eat.  That reduces the amount of corn we grow, pesticides and inorganic fertilizers we use.  All of these are by-products of petroleum processing

So before you continue your next rant on switching from gas to electricity, address the major problem first, which is ag, not personal driving preference.

How do you propose to reduce distribution points by over 80%?  Again, driving is not the big user of oil, its ag practices...fertilizers, pesticides, corn production, harvesting and processing, feeding it to cows, pigs, chickens, etc. You have not touched on the biggest oil consumer at hand, and your answers are vague, and your solutions non-impactive.  With arguments like this, you may actually believe we can address our economic woes by cutting all but military related spending, which is the majority of our spending (debt payments aside)
